OCPL hosts Harry Potter-themed Sock Drive
In the book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter tricks Lucius Malfoy into giving Dobby, an enslaved house elf who has continuously helped Harry, a sock which makes him free. “We can learn a lot from the characters in books,” says Leah Price, Westminster branch manager. “Dobby is a kind character, and we should all strive to be more like him. Dobby’s Sock Drive is perfect to represent how we should help others.” While a new pair of socks cannot fix all the issues, they can make someone’s day better. Help share Dobby’s kindness by bringing in a new pair or pack of toddler, kid, or adult socks to any branch of the Oconee County Public Library during the month of March. Socks will be given to Collins Children’s Home and local homeless shelters. For more information, contact the library at 864-364-5760.
